Alder here is what is what some like to call a "long-stay dog". When he first came to us he was only 6 weeks old, and is now 5 years old as of May, 2017. (That's 36 in dog years) Long-stay dogs like Alder are often left in rescues for months to years for absolutely no reason at all. Alder has been overlooked several times but keeps on wagging his tail regardless. He is active, loves to play, smart, and ready to finally become part of a family. Since Alder has been with us at the rescue he has become well socialized with both dogs and people. He will need some training once adopted. We see no reason why Alder hasn't found his family yet and can't wait to see when he does! He is a complete sweetheart who deserves nothing but love.
If you are interested in adopting, please submit an application at www.RichardsonRescue.org. You will need an approved application in order to visit the pets in our care. For questions, please email RichardsonRescue@gmail.com.
